Kay Bojesen Hippo by Rosendahl

6.5"w x 8"h x 2"d

made in Denmark

The Hippo was born in 1955 as a fun desktop item for managing pencils.

Kay Bojesen's imaginative family of wooden toys has a very special appeal for both children and adults. For christenings, birthdays, school leavers, anniversaries and weddings. A classic and a dear friend for life – from being a popular toy in the playroom to a much-loved design icon in a future home.

Kay Bojesen’s premise in his work was a conviction that his objects should have life, blood and a heart. People should want to pick them up, and they should radiate humanity, warmth and vibrancy. Kay Bojesen's figures are world-famous classics, appearing in museums and exhibits since 1951.

This hippo in solid oak was originally designed as a pencil holder. He still ships with a little wooden pencil to this day! A rare edition to the collection of figures by Kay Bojesen, this hippo makes a great gift for collectors and children alike.
